Pure Water is More Precious Than Gold

I would love to tell the story of a small group of activist who were jump started by the word that a cyanide leach goldmine was going to be installed above their land on Buckhorn Mtn. the affects of the mine would be devastating and would contaminate the land for miles around. making water undrinkable and eventually flowing into the sea. the small group amidst struggle and strife managed to take their fight to the supreme court and win. oh yeah and they recorded an album! "The Environmental Impact Statement" was a collection of songs designed to educate and bring awareness to people on the harms of cyanide leach goldmining.

The battle is still raging on and we must act now to let the public know whats going on!

Anything you can do to help whether it be passing it on or adding a dollar dropping $25 and knowing you'l have a dvd in the mail when its done!

Please help me in my attempt to raise funding for this documentary.

on my way home!

well after a fun and exciting trip to Argentina I shot over to Florida to see my grandpa in hospice. I had an amazing conversation with him. we talked about old times, butterscotch pudding , christmas past and many other things. . we've always been close at heart but thousands of miles have seperated us for almost 18 years now. so its good to come back and see him. he recently fell and broke his hip and got Mersa from poor hospital care and got over it all real fast and was ready to move to the other side. I totally respect his decision and he is going to a better place. look for a music video tribute to him coming soon! Love you grandpa!!

Bob Dylan,Brian Lee and Tim Cash

Well my name actually finally got connected to Bob Dylan even if he has no idea. perhaps he will see the video one day! I love the simple concept of this one. When asked by Brian to shoot the video and that he would be in bend from Korea for only a few days and this was a day or 2 before he arrived that I found out we had the permission from Bob's ..whoever. (i wonder if anyone could understand that runon sentence. anyway. when coming up with the concept I thought how could possibly put a story to a Bob Dylan tune and do it I went with a Bob'esque concept. its all one shot just like the classic Bob video for Subterrainian homesick blues. also I wanted Brian to somehow take on the Bob character. anyone here it is Brian Lee's cover o the Bob Dylan tune "I Want You"

Brian Lee "Devil Hunting" music video

Over the past month we've been moving shaking to and fro....anyway, I just got back from korea where i finished up shooting "Devil Hunting a Brian Lee music video. we started the video at the beginning of October and Brian had planned to not be in it but after seeing the rough cut he thought he should make an appearance... his original thoughts were that the video was a bit too edgy and raw...but later completely changed his mind and had to be in it. On my trip I got to know Brian a bit and found he was a straight up great guy. Super honest and a pleasure to around. I enjoyed Korea very much !so check it out and see what you think. btw , a very special thanks to everyone in bend who helped put this together. The soldiers in the video are just that real soldiers. it was an honor to work with them and they were super-pro and did an amazing job in the piece. Our main character was Mike Walterbeek who had no formal acting experience at all but who I thought "killed it!"" Kudos to Mike! My son Kiran plays a bit of a part in the piece as well. he did great too and so many other people too! thanks to everyone involved. Chris Kas with Art direction as well. the list goes on and on..Byron Garth, Yuvia Storm, Natalie Hull, Brad bailey and many more

Thursday, October 21, 2010


well, I'm sitting here in Seoul Korea at the GREEN GROWTH CENTER. a museum of sorts dedicated to new "green technology" and thought this would be a good time to speak about our plans for the future. off grid...on grid.. alternative energy. the plan is to begin building a studio that doubles as an energy producing factory. a place where film comes to life using the power of the sun and the wind. we will hopefully be closing on the property(crossing fingers) in less than a month. a 2.5 acre parcel just 5 miles outside of Bend Oregon with amazing sweeping views of the eastern hgh desert and great energy potential. looking forward to seeing what the future brings. stay tuned for more more more. I got to get on a plane now so we're out of here.

This month has brought tons of interesting projects. as the summer winds down we have 3 music videos still in the works and hope they are going to be released soon. Ishi Dube "Like Rain" Woven Roots "Amazon" and Versatial "Washington" and dont forget the long awaited "Microchip" by Jah Sun. In August I took a little hiatus from the music video world and teamed up with Sky Pinnick on the latest Rage production. A pilot for a tv series with host Whit Bazemore(former funny car champion turned road cyclist). Two Wheels One Planet is a character driven reality series following Whit Bazemore as he travels around the world to cycle some of the most beautiful lost highways imaginable. Just finishing that one and hoping to sell to ESPN ,Travel Channel, or Verses. We've also began production on 3 political commercial spots. But not your typical spots. they are all comedies and I've had a great time working on them even though I'm on the other side of the fence on the issues. Selling out? maybe, maybe not. Also I've been working on editing 3 episodes of the Outdoor Channel hit series Adventure Guides with dynamic host John Dietsch. and begin production on Brian Lee(Korea) latest music video. as well as a custom guitar feature with Breedlove Guitars and producer/singer/songwriter Franchot Tone.....and thats about it. Hoping to take a vacation really really soon. Maybe take the family to the southwest as soon as i get caught up in November. anyway hope everyone is doing well out there.

Hi everyone! FARfromEARTH films here. We just launched our latest music video for Santa Barbara based roots reggae band Soul Majestic. They have generated quite a following in the reggae world and a few years ago did an internation tour opening for reggae legend Anthony B.

Oriana a singer and co-band leader of Soul Majestic used marijuana during her recovery from cancer and says it was an integral part o her recovery process. Eric Iverson c0-band leader and lead singer of Soul Majestic did a heck of a job on the set and in front of the camera. kudos to his hard work and dedication.

While I was flying across oceans I had the time to edit the behind the scenes of Microchip while the RED footage from the shoot sat in a harddrive in my office back in the states. The behind the scenes was shot by none other than Matt Pugerude. A Bend local and excellent cameraman. Hope you enjoy. Ok this is Tim Cash with FARfromEARTH Films.
thankyou for reading and keeping up with us.

2010 to Date "Its a music video year"

So ths year has been a cray one. Still trying to come up for air...and breathe. Anyway, in late November of last year I got a call from Jah Sun to do another music video. It had been two years since we had worked together . Since then I've shot 10 or maybe 12 music videos. I'm still editing on 6 of them though.

completed music videos since November are:
Jah Sun "Do Good"
Essential I "Future Cops"
Jah Sun "Meditation"
Collective Elements "Superpurplefunkalistic"
Jah Sun "Jamaica"
Leif James "Here I Go"

and then there are the soon to be released.

Jah Sun "Microchip"
Magic Heart Genies "Good Look"
Magic Heart Genies "Get Mystical"
Woven Roots "Amazon"
Ishi Dube "Like Rain"
Itawe "Overload"

So I'm running a little behind but hope to release the last six within the next couple of weeks. Also added a new camera to the arsenal. the Canon 7D. its my new favorite toy....or tool, I should say

Friday, April 30, 2010


Tim Cash of FARfromEARTH Films here. I had the pleasure of working with singer/songwriter Leif James this week. We didnt have much as far as budget so we went gonzo and shot for about an hour maybe an hour an a half then posted till later in the evening and had it up on vimeo by 10pm the same day. We went super simple on this one. all natural light and the canon 7d. A camera which I've absolutely fallen in love with. it took me a while to get the hang of it. but now I feel as though its my new best friend. its so small and with the cheap 50mm 1.8 lense it weighs almost nothing. in fact I tried to shoot it with the higher end 50mm 1.2 but I think the lens weighs more than the body and I was getting used to the weighting of the other lense so decided to shoot it on the cheaper and much much lighter 1.8 . you might think this is weird but going handheld with this camera is the biggest challenge especially when not shooting at 60p. But I've figured out a locked elbo style that seems to keep the vibrations almost out. anyway check out the video. I was able to capture the real rough around the edges and super talented Leif James.

The video as already had some press in its first day:

Rage Productions

FARfromEARTH Films is a commercial video production company in Bend Oregon

I had the wonderful chance to help out on a Rage Productions Production over the last 2 days for Sky Lakes Medical Center. Learning tons from this well oiled machine of a Crew consisting of director Sky Pinnick, DP Byron Garth, AD & producer Chris Kas, production manager Shea Ernshaw, and makeup artist Mona Mensing. The production was shot on the RED and i'm loving that camera!

HOLY %$#&

Last week I was lucky enough to attend the Central Oregon Magazine launch party. what I didnt know was that I , Tim Cash (for tag purposes)was on the cover. Holy Schnikies!! Super stoked and totally blown away. Realy it was the amazing photograph by Phil Wise that really sealed the deal and ofcourse I was able to achieve "blue steel" for the first and only time in my life. The story was written by nationally published author Kim Cooper-Findling. If you live in central oregon I think you can pick up a copy in most grocery stores, restaurants,hangouts and generally all over! and I'm not sure but I think its free.

The first track "Good Look" will be a fun shoot. appearing in this video will be the Lava City Roller Girls of Derby fame. and the second "Mystical" will be more of an effects driven video we're shooting on Friday. Its been a busy week. shooting 3 videos in 7 days then on Monday we're off to New Zealand for 2 weeks to shoot a few more episodes of "Adventure Guides" for the Outdoor Channel. I'll keep everyone posted on all the happenings . STAY TUNED!!!

"Microchip" shoot a success!

Hello everyone. The Jah Sun "Microchip" music video shoot was a success. We stepped it up with this production bringing in many talented people. Including Stylist Mona Mensing who is responsible for the over-all look and style of the piece. Sarah Hall came on as Choreographer as well as casting our talented dancers and nailed it. She had a challenge ahead of her having to choreograph to the song at a slower speed so we could speed them up in post-production. The girls looked better than I had ever expected. Sky Pinnick signed on as DP and is responsible for the stunning cinematography on this project and ofcourse Chris Kas, the everything man responsible for the planning, props, the set and so much more. Oh yeah and me, Tim Cash. I got to direct and edit. It was an amazing experience.


We raised the bar with this one and hope to see it get out there. Stay tuned for the behind-the-scenes video as well as ofcourse the final product itself. See you soon.
